non-traditional air conditioning in classrooms and on-demand transport for old people as examples.

As we prepare for a non traditional 415ppm of CO2 in the air, as we desperately try to save the bee, this story of eating Caddisfly Larvae is rather sad really.

Over here (Australia), we're desperately trying to save Coral and associated marine life.

When so many work on lines, (vehicle manufacture), travel on lines, (rail system), and eat in lines, (sushi trains), it is to be expected, there are social consequences but it is very efficient, and you @garthgoyle are not of that heritage.

Good one @darknuts, maybe that should be dark irony, someone said yesterday same story just paste in different names, but that was the seventy year old newspaper deliverers, is the population too big or the number of houses too small why do you have frustrated resentful middle a men living at home with their parents ?

Posted in: Japan to ban physical punishment of children by parents See in context

As a measure to strengthen the role of child welfare centers, some officials will be responsible exclusively for separating children from parents while other officials will be responsible for consulting with and giving advice to parents, the sources said.

You need case workers not this system, for the very reason that @darknuts described, but more, much more than this you can't keep society "working" to keep the lid on, most crime cases in JT are unemployed people, only because they have time but all are at breaking point, you need to ease the working week back down to fifty hours.

@jennishiebel

It is an extreme image, but in a way not seeing the plastic is more extreme because it means it has broken up into such tiny bits fish could swallow it, so its surprising all that "scientific" study of Whales by Japan didn't mention it !

Our one day a year to "clean up a bit", here in Lismore, but we tried biodegradable, and they fell apart, then we tried banning shopping bags, and they sold us more expensive ones, so yes we too face an insurmountable task, we can't burn it we can't reuse it, we can't send it to China anymore !

Posted in: Smoking, vaping to be banned at Tokyo Olympic venues See in context

footage from Japanese TV network TBS showed Kim taking a predawn smoke break at a train station in China, a woman who appeared to be his sister, Kim Yo Jong, holding a crystal ashtray at the ready.

Now I can understand, smokers are really awkward, especially about denuclearization

which is roughly usd20.00 or $20.00. The article's correct. $, esp on an international news site like JT, often/always refers to the American dollar rather than aud, nzd, cad etc.

Excuse me why if its sold in Japan its your national currency but sold in Australia you assume its American currency, we're not Okinawa you know !

Ours are expensive on purpose to help pay for their eventual hospitalization .

In the picture, they are not socialising and chatting, each is standing apart, with dried leaves between their lips, on fire so the maximum pollution goes into their lungs.

In this country (Australia), we give them all the nicotine they want, orally by spray or gum, the Government still gets its revenue and the patient doesn't get the lung cancer, win win.

Well it seems to me it should be called 7/24, or 24/7, what a joke to call it 7/11 and expect those ridiculous long hours with little custom, there are plenty of vending machines, smokers can use patches, you guys really know how to work yourselves into the ground.

 So now Chinese Foxcon owns Toshiba home consumer business and Sharp,

They are very astute buyers of businesses, like Volvo and Cirrus, and you can maybe think of many more.

Isn't Huawei now selling the most expensive phone at $2300 ?

Posted in: Life-long hatred of felines spurred on serial cat poisoner See in context

Well firstly he didn't drown them he euthanized them, so you mean riverbank not river bed.

People who torture small animals can do the same to larger ones, ie humans. 

Secondly you can think of feral cats as rats so people that poison rats don't go on to poison humans.

Wildlife should be protected.

Yes from cats !

Stray cats are a menace. Thankfully someone did something to get rid of them.

Dont know if you've got anything left but crows, but in Australia stray cats and dogs get poisoned and shot because they actually kill small birds and mammals and as a pack even small stock animals.

They are mammals like us, and have the same needs, feelings and emotions.

Hmmm tell THAT to the Whales and Dolphins !

Some confusion over doing the right thing, waste wise, even China got confused, but they made the cuts and closed loss making imports, many young people can't articulate why they feel they weren't prepared, I tell them the best you can hope for is vocabulary, so that your mind stays rational, because for sure we have done some confusing things and we are in for a rough time ahead, hence the other vulnerable group is the infanticiding mothers.

Bit like those revenge school killings in America, when they go back to their old school and kill people, with no apparent motive, its probably psychosis from nicotine,unemployment or worse.

Posted in: Remain or leave? Carmakers confront hard Brexit choices See in context

There was never any clear reason for leaving as the 48/52 result shows, so rumblings about being their own boss, but specific issue, in Australia a major change by referendum requires a two thirds majority, like we've had a few about being a Republic but its always failed, then we had one about gay marriage and that passed, but a slight majority seems daft.

So if you lift a fish out of the water by its lips or tongue or cheek by the hook does that hurt or are we only talking mamamls like Dolphins or should we ban line fishing, entirely.
